Pete and Frank deserve most of the credit for this restoration, I just pointed you in the right direction!

Turned out very nice.

Frank & Pete did most of the work and are truly remarkable... Charles lead me to them and answered many many emails that got me started. We are very fortunate to have Charles & Pete in this hobby. Thanks!

Is that the original firewall pad?

The firewall pad came from a low mile donor car. I scrubbed it with a toothbrush and sprayed some sems black dye on it.

Thanks, I am very happy with the car, turned out nice!

Wow that looks really sharp.  Cant believe it only took 3 years.

Question on the heater box.  The bracket that holds it to the cowl looks it is painted black or is that a shadow?

I painted it black, could have been natural but not sure.

Very, very nice. Great job by all involved. Really like the gold especially with the gold interior.
